Quite a bit of good video footage from this June '93 run of shows. Cassidy and WTGH have been songs features on All The Years Live and 6/11 from Buckeye Lake was feature presentation for Week 3: Shakedown Stream.
Not a particularly memorable show, imo, save for the psychedelic-symphonic Space through Other One and Days Between.

First and Only Grateful Dead Show
A co-worker had two extra tickets and I had never been to a Grateful Dead show, so I decided I would give it a shot. My girlfriend and I drove from Binghamton, NY to see the show. We had nose bleed seats. Jerry looked like a large ant from where we were in stands. I had a good time and enjoyed the show, but I didn't quite get it. It wasn't until a few years later that I met a buddy at school that really turned me on to the Dead and the obsession began. Unfortunately, Jerry had died so I didn't have any more opportunities to see them live - other than as individuals at Further Fest, The Dead, Rat Dog, etc. Thank goodness for all the Dick's Picks, Dave's Picks, other live releases, tape trading and of course this sight. I listen to GD everyday/all day at work and throughout the weekend. I was always cherish that this show and I am thankful that I got to see them live - if only once and even though this show doesn't compare to a 1970s or early 80s show. Thank you for making these available!

Highlights: Looks Like Rain, The Other One
December 2, 2014 Subject:
Summer 93 was the last really good tour. Not many monster shows Just consistent strong playing throughout. If you listen to the shows from Vegas to RFK you will find some of the finest renditions of the Grateful Deads catalog.
Jerrys tone that summer was ferocious at times,. The Bands sound was extremely sophisticated and tight sometimes downright brilliant.
Looks Like Rain was the highlight of this night. Just an incredible version Jerry is all over it.
SOUND is incredible Thank You Charlie Miller!!! Please upload more soundboards that sound like this from 1993.
Buckeye from the Friday before this show really deserves a better board

unfortunatly I ate a shitload of chips and sour cream chip dip all baked out in the lot....it was a very hot day and I also had like a case of beers on board. Needless to say i was puking my guts out during almost of Sting, and therefor don't remember much of him. I was shocked that they opened with touch two years in a row, but all in all a good show. Loser was awesome, but a different vibe from other shows. my memory is that i left very happy and as always wanting more, this would be the last time Jerry and the boys would visit Buffalo, so it was my last show....miss ya Jer

sting and jerry
Being down front for the first set, i was more thirsty than i ever was in my life. hot and sweaty heads everywhere! i was a huge police fan as well as the dead in highschool and to see jerry sitting in with sting on tea in the sahara was a pinnacle, magical moment that i will never forget.

My final Jerry show..... definitely worth a listen
Little did I know that this would be my final Grateful Dead show. Not a bad one to go out on, I must say. Far better than the previous summer's Buffalo show, to be sure.
At the time, I was disappointed because of all the new songs. However, I now think this round of songwriting produced a much better batch of tunes than the "Built To Last" stuff. I even like Vince's tune. I've always felt that Vince got a bad rap. People were angry at him for not being exactly like Brent, which was unfair. I'll admit that Samba is awful, but Way to Go Home is as good a song as anything Brent ever wrote. He didn't have the 11 years of development with the band that Brent did, so of course he's not going to fill Brent's shoes. The real reason the Dead nosedived in the 90's was Jerry's junk habit, pure and simple. Most heads can't bear to face that reality, so they scapegoat Vince.
I apologize for digressing. This is a solid show, overall. there's a little vocal sloppiness in the first set (and Bob f#cks up the Truckin' lyrics, surprise surprise), but the jams are solid all around. Nothing here that'll blow your mind, but it's some "meat and potatoes" Dead. I'll burn one for Pigpen, Keith, Brent, Jerry and Vince at band practice tonight. I love you more than words can tell. Thanks for all the beautiful music and memories.

I have waited 17 years to hear a sbd of this. This show sticks out in my mind as I saw every show summer 93(sans chicago).even without much from Jerry pre drums. I remember the Other one being on the scary side with the help of the 'purple haze' blotter I took earlier. The Johnny B. Goode was a suprise, they did it again later at Deer Creek and it wasn't as good. The Loser in set 1 was awesome and I enjoyed the not so frequent at the time pairing of cassidy>deal. I loved the Broken Arrow as well. Obviously this show is famous for the first time bob busted out the acoustic during the electric set for LLRain. Very nice.
